World Thinking Day on the Air (TDOTA)

TDOTA 2013

will be the 3rd full weekend in February 16 & 17

TDOTA is an opportunity for the members of the Guide Association from the youngest Rainbow to the oldest Trefoil Guild member to talk to other members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts all over the world via Amateur Radio.

The 22nd February is Thinking Day because it was the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of the Scout and Guide movements, and his wife Olave, who was the first World Chief Guide.

On this day each year members of WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts)
remember the founders of the movement and take part in various activities to think about their sisters throughout the world.

We are planning to run a station over the weekend and will probably be providing the facility for the 2st Redruth Girl Guides troop.

Location will be at the Club Meeting place at Gweal An Top with more details being announced at the meetings and on the website.

A chance to demonstrate the Amateur Radio hobby to youngsters who, just may, develop an interest as a result, this has happened in the past.

If you will be able to come alomng and help us run this event please leave a comment to that effect below.


We have a Fellowship of Radio Scouters in The Netherlands, mainly focussing on JOTA, but in order to provide a Dutch counter station for the TDOTA event we will have PD13BP active during the upcoming TDOTA weekend. In fact, the call will be used in the period from 16 to 28 February 2013, thus including BP-day.

The plan is to operate all bands, all modes and from different locations throughout the period of time.

Hope to find you during TDOTA. Good Guiding.

Erwin – PA3EFR
